This research aims to design and study of the ventilation system of paddy storage. The problem is the paddy grains were deteriorated in the warehouse due to bad ventilation. Thus, the paddy accumulates heat and moisture which causes of fungus and insects. Generally, the cooling and humidity system is applied by blowing air through the curved ducts under the pile of the paddy. However, some area is far from the ducts so the air cannot flow through the paddy grains. Therefore, the simulation of fluid dynamics can show the air flowing conditions through the paddy grains in order to study the position of the air ducts and the type of air ducts to maintain the most effective method to protect the paddy grains.

Abstract. The lost of an eye results in psychological impact, decrease self-esteem and low quality of life. Fabrication of a custom-made ocular prosthesis is very challenging and requires artistic skill to mimic the remaining eye. The prosthesis needs to be precisely fit and matches the color of the iris and the sclera. A cosmetically acceptable prosthesis is that reproduces the color, form and orientation of the iris and the characteristics of the sclera. The purpose of this study was to assess the color printing of both iris and sclera of an artificial eye using UV-printer machine to process the staining procedure. It can reduce time consumed, adjustable shade and provide more stable color mapping on the acrylic resin eye prosthesis.
Dulyachot Cholaseuk, "Develop of a speed sensitive collapsible mechanical speed bump", The 5th International Conference on Engineering, Energy and Environment. 1-3 November 2017, Arnoma Grand Bangkok Hotel, Thailand
Abstacts. A speed bump is a traffic calming device that uses vertical deflection to slow vehicles, typically used in populated area. Typical solid speed bumps made of concrete or rubber can damage vehicles' suspension components and cause discomfort to passengers even when a vehicle passes at low speed. A speed sensitive collapsible mechanical speed bump presented in this paper aims to alleviate those problem in small roads. The speed bump was shaped as a regular speed bump but with internal mechanism that allows it to collapse to a flat surface when a vehicle passes at low speed while lock-up at high speed. The trigger speed is designed at 8 km/hr. Pendulum type mechanism was used for both speed sensing and locking. Result from road test confirmed that the idea has potential for future development.

Abstract This paper presents our experience on the implementation of a software system for realizing the teleoperated driving feature on an RC car. The software system was formulated as three Simulink models using the model-based design approach. Then three sets of source code were generated, built and deployed to the corresponding computer system, namely personal computer, Raspberry Pi, and FRDM-KL25Z microcontroller board. This paper focuses on a design requirement of real-time communication between each computer system based on WiFi and USB serial communication. Due to the time-triggered architecture of Simulink environment, dataflow behaviors are governed by the setting of blocks’ sample time. Even the timing of block execution should be deterministic, but undesirable issues including delay, data loss and deadlock had been observed in our system tests. By investigating communication-related blocks, data framing and execution timeout had been proposed to overcome such communication issues. By performing system tests, the effectiveness of our solution was confirmed with the bound of 0.03 second round-trip delay.
Jinpitcha Mamom, An Innovative Repositioning Bed: Instrument for Preventing Pressure Ulcers, TNMC & WANS International Nursing Research Conference 2017, October 20-22, 2017
Introduction: A pressure ulcer, also known as pressure sore, decubitus ulcer, or bedsore, can be defined as a localized injury to the skin/ tissue occurring most often over a bony prominence and caused by mechanical loading: pressure, shearing, or friction. Pressure ulcers are a common cause of complications among immobilized patients that the immobilization is acceptable caused localized ischemia, which is a result of tissue deformation related to prolonged loading. Objectives: To develop an innovative repositioning bed that promotes patients’ proper postures and positions, and to evaluate its efficacy in reducing ischemia, which can lead to tissue hypoxia, cell death, and pressure ulcer development. Methods and Results: This new innovative bed differs from a conventional hospital bed, as the movement of the patient to the left or the right, and also the raising of the head and knees, can be controlled in order to prevent pressure ulcers. This is compatible with the NPUAP (2014) principle of the clinical practice guideline on pressure ulcer prevention. This bed design has 0-30 degrees of movement for the head level, 0-45 degrees for the knee level, and 30 degrees of lateral tilt to reduce interface pressure on the bony prominences, preventing friction and shearing force and thus allowing higher tissue perfusion and blood flow. Conclusion: The repositioning of immobile patients is an important standard nursing practice that is based on the principle of mechanical loading management, including redistributing interface pressures, decreasing shearing stress, and reducing skin temperature. This innovative repositioning bed was developed based on physics for nursing science and on nursing standards in order to effectively enable patients to properly reposition themselves at proper angles and in proper positions. This innovative bed could be used to prevent pressure ulcers that are complications in the growing population of elderly patients incapable of repositioning themselves
Supachai Vorapojpisut, “Model-based Design of PEMS for Medical Devices”, The 11st international Convention on Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technology (i-CREATe 2017), August 22-24, 2017
ABSTRACT This paper addresses the software design and implementation of Programmable Electrical Medical Systems (PEMS) for medical devices according to the IEC 60601-1 standard. The standard involves many aspects of medical products’ life cycle in which Clause 14 emphasizes on risk management of safety features that depend on software or any programmable element. The software design for an infant incubator is outlined to demonstrate major issues that can arise in safety-related functions. Then model-based design based on MATLAB/Simulink has been proposed as an approach to realize safety requirements. Finally, this paper discusses the claim of safety evidence using the model as executable documents.
